Detroit has become the home of many music festivals, but we mostly lack is an alternative rock festival where you can see the alt acts of the 90s converge with indie rockers of the 00s. Luckily for us, Chicago is not too far away by car or train and they have one of the best music festivals of late summer/early fall: Riot Fest. With an impressive lineup of the Misfits, Ween, Morrissey, The Flaming Lips, Sleater-Kinney, and tons of others — we couldn't stay away from this festival.
